Paul Rand

I love the graphic design genius of Paul Rand. Best known for his corporate logos, Rand was largely self-taught. I love his work because it showcases Vibrance, boldness, and creativity.

Heath Ceramics

I discovered Heath Ceramics while working at my last job, and fell in love with the company. Heath Ceramics' products are great for everyday. They have long followed an environmental mission by creating sustainable products with local manufacturing. Take a look. Serene, simple, and timeless.

the BeSide

UK based jewelry designer Bernice Kelly creates beautiful pieces through the brand Macha Jewelry. The BeSide is where one of a kind jewelry protos are sold. Each piece is either hand-made or individually sourced. Because each piece is different, it is free for you to make it your own. I love the mixture of textures.

La Grenier

I love antiques. Daydreaming about who previously owned each item and romanticizing their lives is so much fun. La Grenier (french for "the attic") is a great find in Brooklyn. Owned by a former fashion photographer, I love the mixed assortment of rustic and muted finishes. It's so refreshing.

Always First

I love sequins and embroidery. Now, as if I couldn't love Topshop anymore, now they have this amazing collection of trophy jackets. I love them. Wear them as summer ends and the weather chills for an unexpected look. With your baggy boyfriend jeans and a slinky sheer top...Beautiful

I love this velvet jacket the best...

Be Free

I love how Free People designs are this playful and feminine mix of bohemian and fresh elements... "frohemian"? Who knows. I love these dresses. I might have to pick up all three. Playful, sweet, and sexy. Perfect for that lull between the end of summer and beginning of fall.

Affordably Lovely Adornments

J. Crew's new jewelry line features a wide variety of beautiful pieces all under $100. If you can't afford to pick up a new dress, these baubles are an easy way to dress up that LBD you've had for years. I want/need the pearl bracelet.

Saving your Pennies? Quarters? Dimes?

A great way to save money is to train yourself to throw all your spare change and dollars into a jar at the end of the day. Be surprised at how much extra dough you pick up after 6 months. These beautiful 'piggy banks' will keep you from "stealing money" and will be beautiful reminders of your thrifty ways!
